Kombu 3.0.24

An advanced Python framework for supporting the AMQP protocol, an open standard for creating secure message-oriented middleware
AMQP stands for Advanced Message Queuing Protocol.

While it's still a niche technology it's also very powerful and slowly but surely seeing a rise in usage for creating real-time communication applications.

Kombu provides a wrapper for most AMQP features, allowing developers to write Python applications and websites that interact with the protocol in a simple manner.

Kombu was also developed from the start to replace "carrot", an older AMQP messaging framework for Python.

This means projects already coded to work on carrot, can easily be ported to Kombu and work out of the box with minimal changes.

Main features:

  • An accent on high performance
  • Supports several message server solutions
  • Supports virtual transport layers
  • Automatic data encoding
  • Data serialization
  • Message payload compression
  • Exception handling
  • Error handling
  • Unit tested
  • Documentation
